Our driver told us he wanted to stop at a few places along the way from Legian to Ubud. I rolled my eyes, knowing I would be paying more-than-Indonesian prices, but consented. This was the first stop, and I was glad we went. It was interesting watching the women making batik fabric and other crafts, and the store had absolutely... More

Since i grew up sewing with my mom I had a great interest and appreciation for what the women were doing....the colors and fabrics were beautiful. I knew I could get better prices on the street but the fabrics were flimsier in my opinion. I got caught up in shopping and forgot to go upstairs. ugh

One of the ten (10) tourist spots I visited during my Febris Bali Tour in Bali worth USD42. Women are doing hand scarves, clothes and bags. They open this village for tourists to see and buy their own hand made products. Prices ranged from USD$10 for souvenirs up to the most expensive USD50-USD100 scarves and clothes. Note: Here's my blog... More

We stopped to see how Batik was made and was quite impressed with the women that were painting the batik or weaving the material. The manufacturing area was outside once you got into the sales area, they would not let you take pictures. I found some of the designs to be very intricate and interesting. Upstairs they had material displayed... More

Although the batik was handmade and took a lot of effort I thought it was a little overpriced. Bought cushion covers at $50 ea and sarongs around $35. Nice but similar items at markets.

Great to see the process involved in how they make the clothing. The time spent making just one dress is amazing. Really well worth a look

I was awed to see the process of making batik. Really admirable how they do the intricate design b hands. There's a shop where you can buy a lot of their produce (bags, dresses, blankets and more) but I spent most of my time watching and taking photos of how batik is made. Some of my shots can be viewed... More

This was the place my guide took me to shop for batik. I was disappointed to find so many other tours that stopped by this place. RIght away I knew they give commissions to all the guides that bring in tourists to this place. Large selection of products available but prices are high and non negotiable. Sales clerk are not...

If you're not the batik kind of person, then this place is not for you. Neither am I as I'm from Malaysia and can get better batik from Terengganu any day at all with much better designs and on silk. We wear them to work. Actually the designs on the modern Bali batiks are deliberately flippant in order to cater... More

Outside the Sari Amerta Batik Collection you can see how batik fabrics are made by local artisans. Watching how batik is produced is very interesting and it gives you a real appreciation for the talent it requires and the many hours involved. After seeing how batik is made make your way in their large store and buy some batik for... More
